Why Pin The Ears Back?
Many people are surprised the difference an otoplasty can make to a patient’s facial profile. Pinning the ears back gives the head a proportional shape. Many times, otoplasty is performed on teenagers & young adults. As these young patients grow into their adult bodies, surgical correction of the ears & earlobes may be desired. An otoplasty procedure quickly corrects what many people believe to be an undesirable facial feature
An otoplasty is a surgical procedure requiring general anesthesia and around 2-4 weeks downtime, with most of the swelling dissipating after the first 72 hours and full comfort returning within around 2 weeks, which you can also read more at realself.com.
